The "Produce before you Consume" rule


The other days, i read somewhere the phrase "produce before you consume", unfortunately i drafted the moto and not the media that i read about it so to cite. However allow me to add some thinking on this as well.

It is a short but very powerful and meaningful phrase, that hides in it a message of how the game is being played! It is a whole philosophy within that phrase and shows the way we should see production of a good/service and the consumption of it!

Is really Internet running out?

The discussions about the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 has started for some time now, actually there have been some years already that planning is made. Why? IPv4 is the 4th version of Internet protocol actually managing the IP addresses which can be 255 digits long and this has a certain capacity: 4 billion addresses can be used!

For someone this figure looks amazing, and maybe large enough to say: exaggeration! No it is not an exaggeration if you think the number of different electronic devices that we use daily all of them connected on the Internet.

Good Planning is fundamental for successful Project Management

Planning is an important key point in order to have a successful Project management. It is something fundamental for managing projects even for small scale ones. Planning is the art to connect tasks and activities, assigned them to resources, over time.

An efficient planning is one that is constructed without causing conflicts and the progress of the activities is happening smooth. A good planning is the planning that is capable of orchestrating all of the above, achieving the best outcome within time limits, with proper utilisation of resources and at the same time not consuming more budget that originally predicted.

And here you are, me writing today for the surrounding environment that affects all of us, from any place anyone might be located, working, enjoying life.

Let me define what i mean by surrounding environment so all to know the frame that i will try to be in while explaining the reasons.

Web design Tips using great graphics and themes

Going back in years, remembering the endless nights spent for designing the skeleton of a site, then coding it and then "dressing" it with images made in Photoshop, makes me saying: "why Joomla, Drupal and WordPress" took so long to become what is currently considered "hot" in the web design?

Of course a site without good graphics nowadays is like a house without walls, paint, furniture and all these good equipments, so for every good to excellent rated website a good graphics package MUST be selected.

Decision making models, a necessity to help you "shape" the future

These models are not something new, as a procedure "Decision making" exists since the time that the first human had to choose between A and B, not recalling exactly the date, imagine how far back in time i have deliberately travelled you though.

As we progressed in time, among others that were revolutionised, decision making also was improved and instead of having to choose between A and B in the simplistic example above, more complicated things, circumstances, questions and problems were in need of the best decision to be made.

There are plenty of situations that a decision is required, the importance of it may vary, the weight of the impact might be also different depending on the decisions made.

The power of perception - ways to be managed

Imagining or even living the reality you want has to do with perception. It is being experienced differently for each person, it has great power as it can control feelings, influence decisions. Perception has the ability to transform a picture from black to white, without actually changing the colour, looking it from a different angle, while the picture remains black, you start to see white.

Usually the perception people have on objects, feelings, logical expressions that come across in our day life have a unique meaning and definition for each one of us each time.
